It's tough to get a good dinner salad in this town, but Port City is great. Their soup is delicious too. You can tell they put a lot of care into their ingredients.

A nice establishment in a desert of opportunities. Loved the beer selections ( it's an Irish Pub) and the food was good. It was good pub food, not haute cuisine. It was substantial and good.. If I am ever in the area, I will return.

Salad was not fresh. Steak tasteless. Will not go back again and can not recommend to others. Reviews led me to expect more. Beer selection is good and was the only redeeming quality to this place.

First off, the food here is excellent. You can't go wrong with the Black Brimmer sandwich or cheesy potato soup - my favorites. When our family comes to town to visit, this is a must-eat stop for us. This time around, unfortunately, our beers (different...More

We are very sorry we were not able to accommodate you. Occasionally we hold private events, and with us being such a small restaurant that unfortunately requires us to close to the public during those times. We hope you will come back and try us...More

Drinks are great price well made and taps always cold. Not small not large but just right for Friday or Saturday night out. The food is great with twist on bar food stables. Filling and large portions for the price.

Description
Inspired by the warmth and camaraderie of Irish pubs, we are nestled in the Ohio River town of Portsmouth. We feature a blend of classic pub fare as well as local favorites, along with 9 brews on tap and beers sourced both regionally and from the Celtic Isles. In the evenings, we host group get-togethers, open poetry nights, Pub Quiz nights, and opportunities for local musicians to try out their latest work. On Friday and Saturday nights, sit back and enjoy live music, accompanied by a premium whiskey, wine, or mixed drink special from our full bar.
